Burnaby Scottish Country Dance Club

Come Dance with us!!

Classes are held at the Scandinavian Community Centre, 6540 Thomas Street, Burnaby, BC, just north of the Kensington interchange on Highway 1.

Class times are Mondays 7pm to 9:30pm and weekly classes are held from mid-September through April.

No partner nor experience needed! Dance steps and patterns are introduced to new dancers during the first half hour of each class.

Wear comfortable cool clothing that allows for ease of movement. Ballet slippers and ghillies are the norm, but any light shoes are fine to start with.

Come and try it at no cost for a 2-week period to decide if Scottish Country dancing is a good fit for you!

The Burnaby Scottish Country Dance Club (BSCSC) was formed in 1972. The club has two qualified dancing teachers: Rosemary Coupe and Cathrine Conings.  We host an annual dance in March, often with the live music of the Vancouver Fiddle Orchestra.  Members also enjoy dancing at many Scottish country dance events held throughout the lower mainland. All members of the BSCDC also belong to the Vancouver Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, a worldwide organization which provides essential resources, trains teachers and sets standards for this dance form.

The Burnaby Scottish Country Dance Club has an Entertainment Team that performs at community events, retirement homes and health care facilities, particularly in the January “Robbie Burns Season”.
